AFL Decade in Review

AFL Decade in Review


Who was the Team of the Decade
Ranking 2000-2009


Over the past year debate has surrounded who was the best team of the past decade. With two great dynasties, Lethal’s Brisbane Lions from 01′-03′ compared to the mighty Cats from Geelong (07′ and 09′). This article ranks all 16 AFL sides over the past decade 2000-2009.

I awarded the following:
GF Winner – 25 Points
GF Loser – 15 Points
Preliminary – 5 Points
Semi Final – 3 Ponts
Elimination – 1 Point

Also I gave bonus points to teams that finished in the top 4 during the Home and Away season. Keeping the sliding scale 1st – 16 points – 16th – 1 point. I awarded 1st – 4 Bonus Points (BP), 2nd – 3BP, 3rd – 2BP, 4th – 1BP.

The reason of undertaking this is to discover who was the most dominant team of the decade.

After these adjustments I came up with the following ladder.
1 Brisbane – 212 (3 Premierships)
2 Geelong – 194 (2 Premierships)
3 Port Adelaide – 178 (1 Premiership, 3 H&A Top)
4 Sydney – 157 (1 Premiership)
5 Essendon – 145 (1 Premiership, 2 H&A Top) (5 Finals)
6 West Coast – 144 (1 Premiership, 1 H&A Top)
7 Adelaide – 142 (3 Prelim Losses, 1 H&A Top)
8 Collingwood – 138 (2 GF Losses)
9 St. Kilda -125 (1 GF Loss)
10 Hawthorn – 120 (1 Premierships)
11 North Melbourne – 98
12 Melbourne – 96 (1 GF Loss)
13 Western Bulldogs – 93
14 Fremantle – 71
15 Carlton – 68
16 Richmond – 59
